We stayed here while touring the university. The location was very convenient. The rooms and public areas were very clean. The breakfast was good, better than most. I would stay here again if we return.

My family and I visited Tuscaloosa for an Alabama ball game. We loved this hotel. The room was nice and big, the breakfast was just wonderful. They had so many choices for breakfast, and my family really liked it. There was also an afternoon reception complete with soup, sandwiches and beverages. We will always stay in this hotel when we...

I spend two night in this hotel with my wife. I found it nice and clean, convenient location near Mc Farland Blvd. Well soundproof and good mattress. Cannot comment on breakfast, since I didn't get-it, but I saw that the offer was good.

We stopped at this hotel on our way to Richmond, VA from San Antonio, one of eight nights we spent in the IHG family of hotels during our vacation. The hotel was close to the University of Alabama and was in immaculate condition. We could not ask for better facilities or accomodations. The room was spotless and not lacking in... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. It just happened to be the same night that a bunch of youth soccer players were also staying. The pool was full of screaming elementary schooled kids and pretentious parents. Not our idea of fun. So, we skipped the pool in favor of checking out the University, which was nearby. We also spent... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Tuscaloosa is the best place to stay! Friendly, clean, close to restaurants and shopping. Perfect for game days. The trolley to the stadium is right across the stadium. They always host a wonderful reception on the Friday nights before Alabama games.
